Devils are the legions of fallen angels that come from the infernal realm known as Hell. These diabolic fiends seek to manipulate and dominate mortal creatures in their long-term goal to rule the cosmos. Devils corrupt mortal souls and drag them down to Hell where they are transformed into more devils to serve in their constant battle against the forces of Heaven.

Devils have a highly structured and organized society. Every devil knows its place in the hierarchy of Hell. The higher-ranking devils not only have greater infernal abilities and are more physically powerful, but are also more cunning in what evil they perform.

Devils believe in following the rules. They will often bend the rules in a manner suitable to their needs, but they will never outright break any rules. Nor will they break their word, once given. A devil will speak in half-truths and cunningly-worded phrases, but when they say they will so something, they will do exactly that.

Devils react coolly, rationally, and in a calculated manner. They do not tend to act emotionally, but the stories of infernal rages are well known to cause great destruction. They delight in inflicting misery on others as a means of crushing the will of a mortal and eventually gaining access to the mortal soul.

After a mortal soul has been thoroughly tortured for an untold time, its soul it wracked with pain and infused with hatred. It is at this time that the devils then transform the soul into one of their own. The mortal soul is corrupted with infernal power and turned into the least powerful of the devils: a lemure.

These mindless fiends make up the rank-and-file of the infernal legions. They shamble forward at the command of their masters’ whips, thoughtlessly slaughtering everything in their path.

When not engaged in battle, lemures are left in the fiery spawning pits of Hell to torture any mortal souls that they find swimming amid the hellfire.

A lemure is a hideous creature, appearing as nothing more than a lump of melted flesh that oozes across the ground as it moves. They stand about 5 feet tall and weigh about 100 pounds (10 bulk).
